Delicate Frost.

I love my patio table!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever spent 20+ minutes photographing a patio table, or for that matter, any other kind of table. Yesterday morning that’s exactly what I did.


You may be wondering, who in their right mind spends nearly half an hour photographing a 3 1/2′ x 3 1/2 foot glass topped patio table?

That would be me.

Of course I think I had good reason to spend some quality time bent over the table, camera in hand, doing my best to capture these amazing patterns created by the frost that formed on the table. Knowing the sun wasn’t going to wait and soon the table would no longer be in the shadow of the house, I worked as quickly as I could capturing as many unique compositions as I could see.

Crystalline Bouquet.

Even as the sun rose further in the Skys, a its warm light started to make its was across the tables surface, melting the frost, I still found the frost too good to pass up.


If only I had more time.

In other coronavirus news…

I’m please to announce that one of my print partners is now offering custom printed face masks. You can choose any one of my images and have it printed on the front. As masks are becoming more and more common, you can now look your best while wearing one? To purchase your washable, reusable face mask visit my print sales website HERE. Once there, simply choose your favorite photo(s), and select Face Mask from the list of products. Any and all sales are greatly appreciated as I’ve watched my photography income for the foreseeable future evaporate due to the coronavirus.

PLEASE NOTE: These are not medical grade masks, and should not be used as such. These masks are just one part in the line of defense on the occasions where you need to venture out in public.

Stay safe!

  1. I feel the same about frost, Jeff. I used to take photos at the park as quickly as possible before the sun hit the frost. Very cool about the masks. Our daughter is making them, too.


    1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such beautiful patterns on that table before. This morning it was just as frost covered, though completely devoid of anything I’d want to photograph 😀

  2. Told you I was jealous?! Well, I am! First of, there’s no frost here any more to play with (if there ever was any in the first place; I believe winter was way too mild in Paris for any such thing to happen), then I might be too cold to stay more than 20 minutes in the cold morning air trying to find the right angle and composition…
    I’m so happy you did, though! the results are magical!

    The mask idea is such a good one!
    Take care and stay safe!

    1. The beauty of this particular encounter with frost was that I was only a few steps away from the nice warm house. If I got cold I just needed to step inside for a bit. 🙂

    1. Thanks Paula, It can be fore sure, but it’s really hit or miss. The day I made these photos was the only time this past winter that there was anything notable going on on the table. I sure was glad for that morning though.
